1993-1994 “Saturday Evening Mostly Country Music Show”
WBKE 89.5 FM, N MANCHESTER IN
Unfortunately, I wasn’t diligent about keeping records of show information the 1st 2 years (Fall 1993 to Spring 1995). This was partly because I didn’t have much of a collection to play, I used home-made tapes a lot, & I recorded several shows, so I didn’t think I needed a written record; though, hindsight 20/20…. That noted, I found a few notations, most of which are too illegible to completely transcribe. Notes I could completely read follow.
09/1993 1ST SHOW
I was very nervous opening, especially when I spoke into the microphone to introduce the 1st song: Alabama’s “Song Of The South”. I’m pretty sure I was nervous up until the very end of that 1st show, but I quickly became very comfortable in the booth & found myself having so much fun with it that I wished I could host more radio shows during the week, something I wasn’t able to fulfill until the spring semester of my senior year.
My sister, here for Brother-Sister Weekend, chose these songs for the 1st 6-pack of the night, 7p-7:25p:
EARL THOMAS CONLEY … what she is
SYLVIA … nobody
RODNEY CROWELL … after all this time
KATHY MATTEA … where’ve you been
BELLAMY BROTHERS … rebels without a clue
RICHARD MARX … endless summer nights
I featured this trivia:
17 United States capitals NOT names of Indiana cities
Baton Rouge LA
Carson City NV
Des Moines IA
Jefferson City MO
Little Rock AR
Oklahoma City OK
Salt Lake City UT
A friend, Jenny, loaned me a Reba McEntire CD, with a note that she would start listening a little after 9p due to a new “MacGyver” movie on at 7p.
